Thimble, a tool developed by Mozilla’s Webmaker team to allow anyone to be a creator of the web and not just a consumer, was recognized as one of the best educational tools online—a “game changer”—of 2014 and given an “ON for Learning” award by Common Sense Media and its Graphite platform. Chris Lawrence, Senior Director of the Webmaker Community Team; Jeffrey Knutson, Senior Editor at Common Sense Media; and a group of educators who’ve used Thimble as a teaching and learning tool with youth and adults are featured here as they discuss the award and the affordances of this innovative, web-based authoring experience.

Guests for this webinar were:

  • Jeffrey Knutson, Senior Editor at Common Sense Media
  • Chris Lawrence, Senior Director of the Webmaker Community Team
  • Paul Oh, Senior Program Associate with the National Writing Project
  • Kim Wilkens, Founder of Tech-Girls
